  • 4 cups glutinous rice
  • 1 1/4 tablespoons sea salt
  • 2 1/4 cups coconut milk
  • 1 cup water


  • Make the buri container by swirling the buri leaves on a mold that is about 1 1/2 inches in width. Lock the cylindrical leaf container that you made to prevent the leaf from swirling back.
  • Wash the rice and then place in a large bowl.
  • Pour-in water. Let the rice absorb the water.
  • Pour-in the coconut milk and then add the salt. Gently mix and let stand for 10 minutes.
  • Scoop the mixture to the buri container and then seal. Set aside.
  • Arrange the suman in a large cooking pot. Pour-in about a quart of water. Let boil.
  • Adjust the heat to low-medium and let the suman cook for 60 to 90 minutes.
  • Remove from the cooking pot. Let the temperature cool down.
  • Serve with ripe mangoes on the side. Share and enjoy!
